Not to be confused with unglued, which is another state I’m in occasionally, unstuck is a condition I wish I was in.
I’m stuck on One Small Touch. The story isn’t gripping me and I don’t know if it’s because I’ve over-thought it and lost that spontaneity or I’m just burnt out on the story right now. It’s got some really good elements to it and when I loaded it onto my kindle last month and re-read it I was pleasantly surprised at how good a lot of it read.
It should be easy to finish it up and publish, right? Only I can’t bring myself to work on it. I had a mini-breakthrough a couple weeks ago and added some to it but the burst of enthusiasm didn’t stay around to finish the job.
We moved in February, do you think my muse just can’t find the new house? Or maybe she’s still in one of the many unpacked boxes in the garage?
Whatever the cause, I need to get unstuck. So next month I’ll be participating in the Story A Day blog challenge (http://storyaday.org/). I figure I’ll either get myself unstuck or have a psychotic episode.
Either way I’ll have fodder for my stories, right?
